Many people often think that big dogs are very tough and scary by judging their appearance, but they are actually very friendly and can also also be a sweet friend. In fact, they get along very well not only with human but also with many other animals in all shapes and size sizes. A viral video about a big dog named Rudy Jane comforting a little kitten during his bathtime, has proved this point well.
Ruby Jane, a 5-year-old Bloodhound – known as one of the biggest and oldest race of hounds – loves everyone and kittens, especially rescue kittens.
Jane and Bodie – a special bond
“Ruby Jane is a very playful dog and is very good with all of the foster kittens.” said Stephanie Vice, a veterinary technician, who is also Jane’s owner.
Vice and her husband Matthews often pick up and raise kittens at their home in Lakeland, Fla. Thanks to that, Jane has met and lived with a lot of fostered kittens – she has lived with over 100 rescue kittens. And because those little kittens don’t have a mother, the sweetheart Rudy Jane does her best to take care of them, and loves all of them as a reliable big sister.
Among Jane’s beloved kittens, her most favourite kitten is Bodie, a rescue 5-week-old American Wirehair kitten. Vice and Matthews brought Bodie and his two siblings home from the SPCA Florida no-kill shelter. And because the kittens were too young at that time, Vice and Matthews decided to bring them up until they are old enough to be adopted by other people.

As you can see in this video, Bodie is taking a bath in a small box, and he is shivering since this is his first time doing so. But luckily, his big sister Jane is right next to him and is ready to help her favourite little brother whenever he needs her aid. The big Bloodhound comforting the 5-week-old kitten by using her big paw and gently patting him during the process, making sure her little boy doesn’t feel cold and scared. And as a result, the little kitten has received Jane’s kindness and calms down until the end.

Everyone can’t get enough of this heartwarming scene between them. After all, who doesn’t want to see a big dog comforting a small kitten during his bath right?
